Gua sha is an indigenous folk technique that stimulates the skin to bring sha rash to the surface, releasing the exterior and resolving Qi and Blood stagnation. The author explains how to apply gua sha in specific disorders, with case studies documenting successful treatment of pain and illness. Clinically valuable to acupuncture as well as bodywork practice, the book is easy to follow with illustrations, color and black-and-white photos.
 
PERSONAL TESTIMONIALS
" By using historical examinations of East Asian medical texts, cross-cultural historical documents, contemporary scholarly sources, interviews with living elder practitioners and her own keen clinical experience (Arya Nielsen) has brought Gua Sha to the center of Oriental medicine clinical practice. She has found a precious lost ring that might have gone down the drain of disuse."

Author The Web That Has No Weaver
 
"Arya Nielsen has a fresh instructive style as a writer that reflects her long experience as a TCM teacher. The book is…a valuable practical manual for all hands on practitioners."
Harvey Gale, OMD
Pacific Journal of Oriental Medicine
 
"With a deep and broad historic perspective, Arya Nielsen has enormously enriched my associations with Gua Sha, which…I had learned from my own Chinese teacher as a remarkable and often miraculous intervention for afflictions resistant to the ministrations of biomedical technologies in which I was originally trained. …Through Dr. Nielsen’s erudite discussion of the San Qiao, my appreciation of this invaluable therapeutic tool has been profoundly enhanced in the context of the most fundamental aspects of Chinese Medicine."
